Tomlin and McAllister Out of Options, Perhaps Out of Tribe’s Pitching Staff

Today continues DTTWLN’s three week examination of the Indians’ 2014 season and where it fell short of the playoff expectations established last winter. The staff will examine where the season went wrong and the challenges the front office faces to make the Indians contenders in 2015.

He suffered from an oblique injury in April and a hamstring injury in September, but neither fully explained how far his numbers had fallen....

Indians offseason checklist: Four steps to a contender in '15

Well, Tribe faithful, here we are again. On the outside looking in on the MLB postseason. Last season the Indians made it by the skin of their teeth and we watched our team put up a goose egg. But outside of that, a legitimate run has been a distant memory. The Indians have a plethora of young talent between the Triple-A and Major League levels, helped by recent drafts and trades...

Today In Tribe History: October 19, 1946

Cleveland and New York match up on a trade, as the Indians send struggling pitcher Allie Reynolds to the Yankees in exchange for second baseman Joe Gordon. Reynolds, who was 11-15 in 1946, will go 19-8 the next season in the Bronx and will go on to win 131 games for the Yankees over the next eight seasons, five times making the All-Star team. The 31-year-old Gordon, the 1942 American...

Should the Indians Exercise Aviles’ Option?

The Cleveland Indians will have a few hard decisions to make, regarding personnel and one of the first of these should involve Mike Aviles. Unlike all but one other member of the final 40 man roster for the Indians, Aviles is not officially under contract for the 2015 season. Rather, the super utility man has a single option year left from his contract that he signed shortly after...

Why trading Francisco Lindor would be a bad idea

It has been well documented that over the years the Cleveland Indians have a propensity of drafting more “polished” college players in the first round of the draft, but in 2011 they decided to roll the dice with the number eight overall pick on a prep star out of Florida, shortstop Francisco Lindor. The Tribe passed over former college players and now major leaguers such as...

Is Jason Kipnis just a One Hit Wonder?

Los Del Rio is famous for doing the Macarena and little else. Soft Cell got famous for Tainted Love while Dexys Midnight Runners used Come on Eileen. Right Said Fred told the world that I’m too Sexy and The Baha Men asked Who Let the Dogs Out? Just like all of these other one-hit wonders, Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis just might still be cashing in on his biggest hit—June...

Biggest Holes to Fill in 2015 & a Shovel To Fill Them

With the end of the post-season fast approaching and with it, the advent of free agency and the beginning of the trading season. It is obvious that the Indians need help if they want to be a World Series contender in 2015 and not just a Wild Card contender, although where that help comes from is yet to be decided. As always, super star free agents are likely off the table and while...

Early Potential 2015 Indians Line-Up

Placing the 2014 Indians season fully into the rear view mirror, this will be the initial look at next year’s team. While this is likely to change many times throughout the off-season as trades are made and free agents are signed, a starting point is needed to notice any changes that are made. As there is only one player leaving the Indians through free agency and a lesser one...

The 2015 AL Central Winners: Cleveland Indians

I’m getting a little jumpy here, but I’m excited for Cleveland Indians fans for next year. After making the wildcard play-in game last year, the Indians had a a small letdown this year. A good thing that did come out of the 2014 season is the Indians look poised to win the AL Central next year. The Tigers will obviously be the favorites coming into the season, but I would push...

Indians Rumors: Cleveland could trade SS

The Cleveland Indians ended the 2014 season with a record of 85-77, third in the American League Central. The Indians were 11th in runs scored and 14th in team ERA. While a bounce back season from Michael Bourn, who appeared in only 106 games this season, would help, the Indians could also trade a shortstop to bolster the roster.#452112622 / gettyimages.comAs reported by Terry Pluto...
